FOCUSING YOUR BINOCULAR
All Sightron Binoculars are adjustable for individual eye focus.
To adjust for your eyes close your right eye and focus your left
eye using the center focus wheel. Once the left eye is in focus,
close the left eye and turn the right diopter until the right eye is
in focus. Both eyes are now in focus, rotate the center focus
wheel to adjust the focus for objects near or far until clear.

ADJUSTING YOUR EYECUPS
EYE ADJUSTMENTS
Interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance from the center of
one eye to the other. To set the distance correctly hold your
binocular in the correct viewing position and move the barrel
until you see one circular field. Once you have achieved a
perfect
circular field note the IPD reading on your binocular for future
quick adjustments.
Note: Compact binoculars do not have an IPD scale.

BINOCULAR CARE AND CLEANING
If you have purchased a waterproof model (SII Waterproof
Series, SII Big Sky or SIII Series) your binocular is waterproof
and fog proof and will provide many years of trouble free
service. Non-Waterproof models are not fog-proof or waterproof
and should not be used in conditions where water or harsh
conditions will cause them to fog. It is best to store all
binoculars in a safe clean environment where they will be free
from excessive knocks and hard vibrations.
Never attempt to wipe mud or dirt from lenses as the grit will
scratch the lenses and remove the lens coating from your
binoculars. To clean use distilled alcohol or purchase a camera
cleaning kit from your local department store. Never use a
standard window cleaning solution as they will scratch the
lenses. Never attempt to clean your binocular by removing lenses
or disassembly.
CAUTION:
Never attempt to view the sun with your binocular or the naked
eye, permanent injury and loss of sight may occur.
